Science Says: You Will Be Cheated On
An MIDUS Study correlated personality data to infidelity data and identified the following two groups as being vulnerable to being cheated on:
On the other side of the coin, these groups are less likely to be cheated on:
My take on this data is that agreeable men get cheated on more because their women know they will take them back, and open women are cheated on more because they get into more, well, open relationships and don't define boundaries as clearly.
Conscientious women may be less likely to date a cheater in the first place and probably also less likely to take a cheater back. I'd like to think that religion reduces cheating because religious people are more moral, but somehow I think it's just because they have more eyes watching them. Religious communities can be pretty strict.Science Says: You Will Be Cheated On
